Usher in the warmth and cosiness of the season by inviting the colours of autumn into your living spaces. From deeper, darker, more formal tones to light, bright, relaxed shades, these are the autumnal hues the experts at Resene recommend using in your home.

More than apt, given the season, is the emergence of this season’s must-have colour trend. Autumnal hues, it seems, are set to dominate our interiors this autumn (and beyond), imbuing our most design-led spaces with a sense of warmth and vibrancy. As we pivot away from greens, pastels and minimalist whites, the rich, opulent hues of deep red are making a serious comeback, conjuring all things comfort and relaxation, and adding a quietly luxurious edge to our homes. Given the colour’s somewhat bold nature, we’ve consulted the experts at Resene, who offer a vast array of options from crimson to oxblood and a veritable spectrum in-between, on how to best utilise the most intimate of shades.
